Volunteers help survey frogs across state

FORSYTH - Sarah Barlow had a small problem. She had a deep knowledge and interest in frogs and toads, including two wildlife degrees focused on herps and a thesis exploring frogs' use of restored wetlands. But the former city of Savannah environmental planner had no place to apply that experience.

Accept God's gift to mankind

Everyone loves gifts and during the Christmas season, many of them are exchanged. People will go into debt to buy gifts for their children, families and friends. Often, caught up in the hype of gift-giving, we forget the real purpose of this holiday. We forget that this is a day that we have set aside to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God's gift to the world.

Hearts must be open to accept faith

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus! Most of us are familiar with the letter to the editor that ran in the New York Sun in 1897 from then 8-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon. She wrote, " Dear editor: I am 8 years old, and some of my friends say that there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, "If you see it in 'The Sun,' it's so. Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?"

Chamber supports state tax panel

Editor, The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce knows that our tax system can be a key factor in bringing jobs, economic development and quality of life improvements to the state that benefit all Georgians.

Not remarkable but it's still a skill

I finally did it. I learned to make fire by rubbing two sticks together. And although that particular skill is not marketable in a conventional sense and likely not necessary unless you are lost in the wilderness, I feel a sense of accomplishment.

Should politics trump national security

Very often, the way you respond to a problem depends on where you sit and how you view it. As a child, my parents taught me the value of a "bird's eye view." As an activist working in the trenches of the 1960s civil rights movement, I learned about building a movement from the ground up. Today as an elected official, I try to approach issues with a big-picture view to make the best decisions for my neighbors and the state.

Military still restricts gays

WASHINGTON - While President Barack Obama this week is expected to clear the way for gays to serve openly in the military, the new law won't go into effect immediately and unanswered questions remain: How soon will the new policy be implemented, will it be accepted by the troops and could it hamper the military in Afghanistan and Iraq?
